1. Directory Submission is basically used to increase website back link and these back links could help us to improve our keywords ranking into the SERPs. While search engines submissions are used only to index our URL to particular search engines like Google, Yahoo, MSN, etc.

2. Directory submission is used for a website, Most of directories accept only one URL from a website either home page or internal page while search engine submission is for particular an URL. Means we can submit 1000 of URL from a same website into the search engines.

Search engines, such as HotBot, create their listings automatically. Search engines crawl the Web, then allow people to search through what they have found.

A directory such as Yahoo! depends on people for its listings. You submit a short description to the directory for your entire site, or editors write one for sites they review. A search looks for matches only in the descriptions submitted.

Directory submission is submitting your website to various web directories to build backlinks and generate traffic. On the other hand search engine submission is also a type of directory submission, but here the website is submitted to search engine directories like Yahoo directory and DMOZ directory listing. Submitting and getting approved in search engine directories help to build your website authority and rank in search engines.
